This week’s shows are dominated by the Philadelphia area lead up to Sunday’s all Terrier party, the Montgomery County Kennel Club show. The Hatboro Kennel Club will stage two shows Thursday & Friday in Wrightstown PA, followed by over 2500 dogs at Saturday’s Devon Dog Show Association’s even in Ludwig Corners PA. Sunday’s Montgomery County KC show will be in Blue Bell PA.

While entries are down by a third from two years ago (and shame on you clubs that are not supporting this show), the show is still, with over 1800 dogs entered, the granddaddy of limited breed shows. Not only is it the largest, it is eclipsed in prestige only by the Westminster Kennel Club show. While the total entry is down, there are still some impressive entries within certain breeds. There are 162 American Staffordshire Terriers, 146 Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers, 138 Border Terriers, 138 Scottish Terriers, and 126 Norwich Terriers. You can visit the INFODOG site to get details on the other Terrier Breeds.

We expect virtually every top Terrier in the country to be competing Sunday. Here’s our top five Terriers:

CH Roundgtown Mercedes Of Maryscot

CH J'Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice

CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke

CH Fleet St Fenway Fan

We will be in attendance as well and will be bringing you the ringside experience here. We will visit as many of the rings as we can and hope to meet as many of our readers as possible. Please stop and introduce yourself.
